Windows 7: Taskbar problems

Taskbar problems

Today I just had this strange thing happening to my taskbar..
Whenever i try to move a pinned item to another position. it kinda "jumps" to another positon and another pinned one takes it place. I hope the picture kinda explains what i mean, it's kinda hard to explain.

When logging into my guest account. I don't have this problem. so it's definitly user-based problem. also no virusses were detected. scanned with several computers. reboot my computer.Still had the same problem..

I also noticed that locking/unlocking has the same view, while normally unlocked looks a little different. I still can resize the bar when unlocked, however it doesn't look like being unlocked when it is. I just see when it is or not by right clicking it.

Does anybody know how I can fix this? this is really annoying me.. I did upgraded to SP1 yesterday.. but because I don't have this problem it on guest account. I don't really think that has something to do with it.

Thanks

The upgrade to SP1 seems too coincidental to ignore. Why don't you try a System Restore to just before the install, see if the problem still exists, and if not, try installing SP1 again.

I just put a copy of my C drive over my C drive and now they don't jump anymore. Problem still is, however, that the bar locked and unlocked still look the same. also, with SP1 installed I didn't had the problem of these jumping icons on the guest account. does this mean I have to make a new user name, and delete this one, and then remake and put everything back?
